West On Grove III

Acrylic on Canvas - 30 x 30 inches

At a patron's suggestion, ahem, I tried another version of this scene, painting not from life or source photography, but rather, the previous painting. Bigger brushes, bigger swaths of paint, and in a rushed fashion. Interestingly enough, each version shows an increase in contrast. I'm not sure why that is. Yet.

I _think_ I'm the happy owner of the previous one. ;)

I like this one, too -- the brush strokes make it for me. I like the decreased contrast in the original, though. The skies feel much more 'real' to me in that one.
